WE MUST STOP CLIMATE CHANGE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE

Climate change is the most important race against the clock we have ever faced. Most of its consequences on our planet and human lives will be irreversible if we don't act now.

WHY TREES?

Trees are key pillars of the world for both humans and the environment. They benefit us by purifying water, air and creating better social conditions. They benefit the environment by providing homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate and improving our soil.

IMPORTANCE OF STOPPING CLIMATE CHANGE

Species Extinction

30% of fauna and 60% of flora species are on the brink of mass-extinction. Forests host most of our biodiversity. Uncontrolled deforestation is the main cause of species extinction.

Pollution

Pollution is the number one cause of death in developing countries. Trees absorb CO2 and other dangerous gasses and, in turn, replenish the atmosphere with oxygen.

Floods

Responsible for thousands of deaths and billions of £'s in lost assets. Trees prevent flooding by trapping water with their roots while limiting land erosion and preventing landslides.

Desertification

One billion people are under threat from desertification, one of the main causes of poverty. Trees are a natural barrier upon desertification and they avoid land degradation.

Food Shortage

700 million people suffer chronic malnutrition. Tree food products complement agricultural crops and provide important micronutrients. Thanks to their deep roots trees are more resilient to droughts and floods, providing essential food access in famine periods.

Poverty and Migrations

2.7 billion people live on less than £2 a day. Agro-forestry & reforestation increase land productivity, create jobs and bring a secure, diversified source of income. Conservation of land productivity is key to avoid mass migration and humanitarian/economical crisis.

Fortunately, We Can Change This!

We just need to create a high standard of sustainable forestry and agro-forestry projects. Also spreading the best practices so in the end, more trees are planted than cut.

THE BEST BENEFITS

PLANTING TREES FOR HUMANS

Air

Oxygen Production
Trees and forests are often referred to as the ‘lungs of the planet’ for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.

Absorbs Harmful Gases
In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.

Cooling
Trees cool the surrounding air by providing shade and by a process called transpiration cooling. This is where trees release water droplets from their leaves that cool the surrounding area when they evaporate.

Water

Purification
Trees purify water and slow down rain by filtering it with their roots. This process prevents erosion and reduces the risk of saturation and flooding.

Water Supply
Roughly 1/3 of the world’s largest cities rely on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water. This includes cities such as New York and Singapore.

Social Benefits

Medical Properties
We derive many medicines from tree bark, leaves and flowers of different species. These are usually used in herbal medicine, but many compounds in pharmaceutical industries are based on those originally extracted from trees.

Developing World
Many of the world’s extreme poor live close to a forested area. Food, drink and equipment obtained from these forests can account for up to 28% of total household earnings in some tropical and subtropical regions.

Mental Health
Trees and nature have been shown to improve mental health and cognition in both healthy individuals and those suffering from mental illness.
THE BEST BENEFITS

PLANTING TREES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Climate

Carbon Capture
Natural forests capture CO2, acting as carbon sinks. Every year, forests and trees absorb the equivalent of 2 billion tonnes of CO2, roughly 1/3 of all CO2 released from the burning of fossil fuels.

Carbon Storage
Deforestation enhances climate change by releasing stores of CO2. Roughly 18% of global emissions comes from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e) which is more than the world’s entire transport sector.

Fauna

Homes
Forests support approximately 80% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. This ranges from small invertebrates to large mammals.

Insects
Trees also support large numbers of insect populations, with some trees such as Birch and Willow supporting upwards of 300 species of insect.

Prevents Extinction
As many as 100 species a day could go extinct from the loss of closed tropical rainforests.

Soil

Protection
Trees make the soil less vulnerable to erosion. The tree canopy also provides protection for the soil underneath.

Nutrient Recycling
Tree detritus (often in the form of fallen leaves) enables nutrient recycling between the trees and soil.

Soil Structure
Tree roots both loosen the topsoil and increase the porosity in the subsoil. Also, the reliable source of carbon from perennial trees benefits the microorganism in the soil which binds the soil particles together, improving structure.
